We're all familiar with the Hong Kong Maritime Museum, but did you know there’s also a cafe quietly tucked away on top? In support of The Nesbitt Centre, a non-profit organisation that provides educational programmes for adults with learning disabilities, Cafe 8 employs and give opportunities to those with special needs. This allows them not only to learn and develop essential skills needed in a workspace, but it also builds their confidence and self-esteem, while feeling a sense of inclusion within the society. Of course, it helps that their food is spot on as well. Boasting a simple menu of salads, sandwiches and wraps, as well as cakes and other beverages, Cafe 8 is a perfect hideout spot for those looking for some light nibbles away from the hustle and bustle.
